Started off well but I'm not sure about these Paralympics. Reason being, how can it be fair for someone with one hand racing against someone with a different disability. If they do ?
One cyclist had, had a stroke. He obviously wasn't racing against someone else with the same disadvantage.
If you get what I'm saying ?

Anyway, I will be watching some, but not staying up until the small hours this time.

Lora Turnham getting gold was amazing, almost brought a tear to my eye as she cried and beamed with pride when the national anthem was played, pure joy smile

We are doing amazingly well. How many medals today? Something like 13.

Strength of character is tremendous to get them there in the first place, and to get so many medals at this stage, might even put the last lot to shame.

Tremendous achievements.
